Favourites, verb expressions for regular activities
Beginners level


In this lesson, Ss will recall the things they like and develop listening skills through gist listening to a boy speaking about his regular activities. They will work in pairs, to compare the information, and individually, to match words and pictures. They will speak about what they like and don't like in pairs and then tell WC about their partner.
